    Very creative.
    I've heard a few people talk about it, but never seen any pics.

    Did you just set it to timer mode and then let it shoot away?

    I use a Gws Slow Stick airplane with Futaba transmitter and reciever. Servos are also Futaba, the motor is a Himax 2812-850 14amp. I use a 3s 15c lipo 910mah.

    The camera os a Pentax Optio S40 4mp with a one gig sd card. I also use a S50 from time to time.

    I put the camera in continuos picture mode and use a nut and rubber band to hold the shutter down. It sets the focus to inf. and the wb to what ever I chose the first shot to be. Depending on the light I might point it at the ground or sky to set it.

    Oh goodie: I recognise the place from your off-the-ground-photos :D.
    But aerial photos are sooooooo different!
    Cool!

    Very cool! I've been interested in using a kite or ballon to do something similar.
